patients. then, he called on congress to pass new laws to ban new military-style assault rifles, expand background checks to cover every gun purchase, limit ammunition magazines to a maximum of ten rounds, and impose stiffer penalties for gun trafficking. we have three reports tonight, and we will start with major garrett at the white house. major? >> reporter: scott, vice president's gun violence task force held 22 meetings and met with more than 220 different groups. it submitted its proposals to the president two weeks ahead of schedule. president obama accepted them with no changes. >> while there is no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence completely, no piece of legislation that will prevent every tragedy, every act of evil, if there's even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try it. and i'm going to do my part. >> reporter: president obama warned of failure if voters don't mobilize or at minimum raise their voice. none of this will be easy to implement, he said. >> i

've signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks ago, i signed into law more than $600 billion into new revenue, by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money that will save in interest payments on the debt, all together that adds up to a total of about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years. not counting the $400 billion already saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so we've made progress. >> didn't president clinton say it was all about arithmetic? republicans can posture on the debt ceiling all they want. they know the truth. listen to john boehner two years ago. >> do you agree with administration officials and other economists that defaulting on the full faith and credit of the united states would be a financial disaster? >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country, but for the worldwide economy. >> oh, financial disaster. apparently this is not a game. outgoing treasury secretary timothy geithner says that we will hit the debt limit between mid-february and

has already passed. the laws that it's already passed. republicans are saying it's about borrowing authority. essentially running up the country's credit card. >> exactly. what the republicans are saying is look, we maxed out the credit card. it's time before we extend any new credit or allow any new credit to do something aboutbe the spending that got us here. that would seem on the surface to be a reasonable argument. but so far, the republicans have not been able to win it. and what tends to happen in the fights when you get all of this late hour melodrama as we have had in the last couple of times and people are close to shut down of the government or other drastic consequence, people bring the congress. in this situation they blame republicans. >> bret: if the ratings agencies put out statements saying that the concern is about the debt -- >> right. >> bret: that changes the dynamic. >> yes. if that gets reported. what tends to get reported is what they say about the debt ceiling melodrama. and not about the debt. that is what it's been so far. >> bret: thank you. >> you bet.
? >> we need better enforcement of the laws that are already put in place. and to be able to follow through with things like the background checks and -- and i mean, this is a good time for everyone to come together, to admit that something bad, something tragically bad has happened and has been happening. and so this is a good time for everyone to come to the middle and start the conversations. not arguments, not debates, but conversations on what needs to be done for the betterment of our communities, our nation, our world. and for me, that's -- that's the most important thing for me. >> jill, why do you think it is such a polarizing issue? the reason i ask that, in britain, we had a similar thing, 16 children murdered with guns. it was never a political debate. here, it really is. it's a real right/left thing. if you're in favor of gun control, you're a liberooney liberal. if you're not, you're a right wing activist or whatever. how do we get through that? >> our country is founded in such a different way, with the second amendment even being part of the constitution, it's so muc

and rule of law. we will show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully, not because we are naive about the dangers we face, but because engagement can more durably lift suspicion and fear. america will remain the anchor of strong alliances in every corner of the globe. and weapon will renew those institutions that extend our capacity to manage crisis abroad. for no one has a greater stake in a peaceful world. >> i think that's the most important thing he said today because i think it's about war and peace. i think he wants peace with iran, somehow. and i think picking hagel and john kerry are part of that today. it will be interesting to look at the traffic tomorrow out of teheran and whether they respond to this or not. the president said it was time now for his generation to keep up the work on behalf of all mernls and immigrants. this is very liberal. let's listen. >> authority is not kpleet until our wives, our mothers and daughters are can earn a liviei equal to our efforts. our journey is not kpleet until our gay brothers and sisters are treated li
for that second suspect is the main concern at this hour and i'm told by a law enforcement source that one of the main focuses that they are looking at right now, law enforcement agencies there on the ground is a wooded area next to the campus of lone star college. they believe that's where this second suspect might have fled into so they are paying a great deal of attention in that wooded area and i believe that creates a whole level of terrain and law enforcement officials on the ground must deal with. so at this hour that is what they appear to be focusing on to find that second suspect. >> and we're getting more information, ed, some of it obviously very consistent with what you're hearing, this coming in from the harris county sheriff's media relations department. let me just update our viewers on what they are saying. as i said, a lot of it consistent with what your reporting shows. they reiterate one suspect is in custody, three people taken into custody. they continue to interview all witnesses to gain as much witnesses at the campus library and five agencies have secured a perimet
, has our brand new polling numbers about how americans are feeling about gun laws. >> reporter: a day after the president unveiled his recommendations to curb gun violence -- >> this is our first task as a society. keeping our children safe. >> reporter: the new nbc news "wall street journal" poll shows 56% of americans do want stricter gun laws. 7% say they're too strict now. and 35% want no changes. 20 years ago, the last time real changes were debated, a full two-thirds of americans wanted stricter gun laws. this time, the public appears to be looking at the complex reasons behind the spade of mass shootings. a large majority said they believed lack of parental involvement with their children, inadequate mental health care and violent video games all contributed more to the gruesome shootings of the past two years than access to guns. and while the president talked a lot about mental health issues yesterday -- >> we will make sure mental health professionals know their options for reporting threats of violence. >> reporter: he never once mentioned parental involvement.
